4.0 out of 5 stars Solid, but not knocking my socks off, July 7, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Parents Need to Eat Too: Nap-Friendly Recipes, One-Handed Meals, and Time-Saving Kitchen Tricks for New Parents (Paperback)
I purchased this book after seeing that 100% of reviews (at the time) were 5 stars. Clearly, it was a book that I needed as a new mother. It has been a good addition to my small cook book collection, and some of the advice is very sound. I have cooked many recipes out of it (but there are still many to go), and it is one of the first books I pull off the shelf when I want to plan the weeks' meals.

Here's why I don't give it 5 stars: the recipes are good, but not amazing. They're solid, parent friendly, not-too-fussy, but more fancy than just opening a few cans and jars dishes, but 5 star worthy? Nope. Also, My husband, who is 6'3' and likes to eat has mentioned that some of the meals that I've made out of this just don't satisfy as much as he would like - they feel like snacks to him.

So, would I recommend this to a friend? Sure. Would I buy it for them as a gift? Maybe. Do I regret buying it? Nope. When I want hands-down-amazing food, will I turn here? Probably not.

Hope that's helpful.
